LympheDivas armsleeves so Different, Australia

I was in USA recently for a Klose conference (next update) and tagged on a visit to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Their therapists were so generous in sharing information such as this. Apparently, LympheDivas (USA) armsleeves are compression garments but with such vivid designs.

Added 15 May 2012: These are now available in Australia now via LympheDonna Click on website.

HBF higher rebates for lymphoedema

Good news! As of 1 August 2011, HBF has introduced higher benefits (I believe currently up to 3 sessions per calender year) for lymphoedema management, only if seen by approved specialised physiotherapist.
So providers who are interested, get your specialised advanced training and accreditation with National Lymphoedema Practitioners Register

Also, visited Medi at Bayreuth and Bauerfeind (Singapore office) on the way back.  Do you know both have ready-to-wear round-knit garments in 2 lengths and almost 7-8 size options?  And Bauerfeind has the Normal and Plus size for each small/medium sizes and so on?
